    I only ever mind him making a save in one game, I think a home game about October where he made 2 or 3 good saves. Other than that one game it seems every shot against him goes in and its never really a blunder but something never looks right about the goals and it feels like he could have saved half of them.

    Hazard is not the answer, hes * woeful from a cross and clumsy looking in general.

    Back to Bain for me who although average and too wee makes some saves.

    Did we sign the wrong barkas like we did with bangura?

    Personally I'd make him player manager. Solves 2 problems.

    True, looking back it was a terrible decision to sign him. Greek * who's never left Greece going to Scotland during a pandemic where he canny really leave his house or bond with team-mates and possible canny even talk to them anyway.

    For that price we could have got a stready keeper from somewhere.

    I think it's difficult in that he's in a team that is usually on the attack for most of the game, but when we give up chances we give them to the opposition on a plate.

    He hasn't been good but I do feel sorry for him and think he's the least of our worries. He hasn't had a chance to generate any momentum and our defence is a tyre fire.

    Neither goal conceded tonight was his fault.

    He doesn’t help himself though by not thinking like a goal keeper he should be aware of the threat

    He definitely looks like he has no confidence and maybe that has shown at times but I really would give him a chance once a decent manager is in. He hasn't caused any insane * ups or anything. He has been let down badly by the team in front of him.

    Beginning to think its best not to judge some of our players while lennys in charge.Some of them are to bad to be true and others have just got worse as the season goes on.

    Hopefully with a new man in charge and a fresh start we will see a massive improvement in our players.

    First goal he shares some of the blame but Ajer gets the lions share.

    He can still be poor and not be directly at fault for a goal. Just off the top of my head in injury time why would you punch that out for a throw in just catch it and get an attack going. I accept he is probably the least of our worries at the moment but there is nothing and has been nothing to prove he is any better than Bain or anywhere near worth his price tag

    If that’s a dig at his English, he speaks a higher register of English than most of the Scottish lads in the squad fs lol.

    Nah, Ajer should have tracked his runner. It was criminal defending.

    That was really odd. It's like he doesn't know how to catch a ball.

    I've never seen him do it so I guess that is plausible.

    I didn't praise his performance tonight. He's got more clean sheets than Bain this season.

    It came across to me you were sticking up for him fair doos if I'm wrong but I know you have stood by him in the past as did I but he's a million miles off it as are Bain and Hazard but neither of those were 5 million

    It would be hard to argue too much with this. However, the problem is, he doesn't make any big saves. If Ajer had scored first half when he made a great run, you couldn't apportion any of the blame to the Livingston keeper, but he came up with a big save to keep his team in the game, Barkas doesn't do that.
